The US ambassador to Kenya on Wednesday afternoon visited Maseno University to preach peace ahead of the forthcoming August 8 elections.
"Kenya is an extraordinary amazing country, which has many opportunities. You have accomplished so much since independence as a nation and it is therefore important to ensure that these elections are free, fair, credible and honest elections,” said the ambassador.
Mr. Godec also talked of the American embassy ensuring that the US universities create more partnerships with Kenya."We will ensure that there are many universities in the United States partnering with Kenya be it in exchange programs or research programs. As an embassy we are also doing voter education outreach. All we are doing is investing in the future academy, peaceful activities to ensure that there is peace,” he affirmed.
The ambassador said that corruption is undermining the future of Kenya; it is undermining democracy, security. He however added that this could only change if Kenyans start to show actions and start making the right decisions.
The event came just a day after the USAID’s withdrawal from financing the Ministry of Health due to corruption scandals. The United States Ambassador to Kenya issued a letter to the government of Kenya suspending US Government, including USAID, direct assistance to the Ministry of Health.
